Just a question about my scout playstyle

Is it a bad scout practice to concentrate more on helping other members of my team? For example my scout load out usually is FaN, Mad Milk, Fan o War. This allows me to be super hard to hit and cover enemies in my milk/hit them with the fan o war. Obviously I kill people with the FaN but is it a bad idea to concentrate on helping my team instead of roaming?

Just wondering your thoughts on this style of play.

I currently have 16h as scout

It's always good to help your team.
You can even bonk infront of sentries so your team can get them without an uber.

Having mad milk and the fan whit out helping your team is like having the Manmelter and not extinguish people.

If you like playing support then that's fine.

Although I'd recomend dropping the Fan o War for an Atomizer, Sandman or Wrap Assassin. You're likely to get yourself killed wipping out the FoW, and the others honestly let you be more supportive. Atomizer makes you even harder to kill, Sandman has the ever-godly stun and the Wrap Assassin's bleed ball can be put to much better use than the FoW's one tagged guy for mini-crits. Anyway, Milking multiple people is much more usefull then marking 1 guy.

Well, it's just what how you like it yourself. If you're feeling glad with helping your team as much as possible, then this is a good playstyle. If you're going for a high k/d rate, or high points, i'd recommend to change it.

Support scout:

1. Scattergun
2. Mad milk
3. Sandman

Stay around the team. The scattergun is for your protection and so you have more killing power that the FaN. throw milk on big skilled targets or large groups. Use that sandman to bonk people.

This is a great support set, another idea is replacing the Scattergun with the Shortstop, which is my support set.

Also if your rich enough you can get the special delivery set which has bonus health.

Also Shortstop would probally be wiser than Scattergun, it's risky going in close with the Scattergun as the Shortstop allows you power at a good range,

FaN
Milk
Sandman

Is a way better support load out. The Fan of War rarely helps and bonking is far more beneficial.
